’Tis the season to be jolly, right? With Christmas literally days away — and of course, you still haven’t bought any gifts (haven’t we helped you enough with our November 21 Gift Guide and weekly Clothes-minded columns?) — we at the Current believe that if you’ve procrastinated this long, then you just don’t care about your loved ones. Yes, we feel bad admitting the truth ... but we do have a few suggestions for extremely last-minute gifts (you can thank us later):

Since taking up the post of arts editor, I’ve had a fascination with all-things-crafty, so when I came across CRAFT, a magazine dedicated to the world of you-know-what, I was beyond excited — especially by its digital-edition-only subscription offer: For only $26.95, you, too, can download instructions to make an unbelievably cute macramé iPod case.

Or, if you’re pressed for time but are willing to dish out insane shipping fees, we recommend you visit The site is filled with off-the-wall items (personal fave: a $14.95 USB humping hound) and reasonably priced selections, too.

We must suggest you avoid at all costs: mix-tapes/CDs, a collage of you and your flavor-of-the-month, and any gas-station finds — really, who needs another pine-tree air freshener? The Current wishes you and yours a happy holiday season!
